Man attempts jail break in girlfriend's suitcase

Elsewhere---suitcase-escape.jpg

Following a conjugal prison visit to her boyfriend, who was serving a 20-year sentence for "unspecified crimes", Maria de Mar Arjona packed her suitcase and left.

It was only when prison guards noticed Arjona – who is 19 years old and pregnant – struggling through the jail’s main door with the wheelie bag that they intervened. Upon opening her luggage they unzipped Edwin Valdemar Artiaga Perez who was inside, wearing only his pants and socks. Officials from the prison in Chetumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico confirmed Arjona had been allowed to bring a suitcase into the jail as part of the intimate visit. They escorted the flexible inmate back to his cell and detained Arjona for questioning.
